Wednesday 23 January 2019 | 09:49 CET | News
Google reports it has signed a long-term agreement to purchase the output of a 10-megawatt solar array (which is part of a larger solar farm) in Tainan City, Taiwan. This deal is a result of collaboration between Google, industry stakeholders and the Taiwanese government, the company also said. Google thus adds a fourth continent – Asia – to its clean energy portfolio. Since 2010, Google has signed on to more than 30 solar and wind projects across the Americas and Europe.
